* WOW! I just realized that -40 is an "interesting" number when converting between Fahrenheit and Centegrade!
As a liquid crystal physicist, I can tell you that LCDs don't work at that low temperature. You may consider LED display on the other hand.

Seemed to work fine after it thawed though.
To make it a bit clearer, I am a Hot Air Balloon pilot, and we do have instruments with huge LCDs (although black and white and without touchscreen, but they are 15x8cm) which work under these conditions. Since it is an device for flight safety I wont open it to look how they're doing it.
